Cichlid Pool in Winter

01/23/2013



We were able to keep our cichlids from Lakes Malawi and Victoria in the outdoor pool over the (mild) winter by dropping a pool heater in it and keeping a solar blanket over it. We later learned that this only works well if the sun is actually out most of the time.

Even with the solar blanket and heater, the water does get quite a bit cooler and the fish less active, but we had a bit of a warm spell and these guys perked right up for a good feeding frenzy.
